The fourth Saturday of the month is always a good one for Kansas City car enthusiasts, because that’s when cars line the streets of the historic downtown Liberty square. And with perfect weather and a holiday weekend, May’s event was one of the best so far this year. If you missed it, you missed out. But we’ll do our best to give you a virtual tour.

2014 Corvette Stingray paces the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500. Our annual look at Chevrolet Indy pace car history
This time, it’s the 2014 Corvette Stingray. This is an all-new Corvette from the ground-up, and this will be the first time most people have ever seen one on the move. It will be painted in Laguna Blue Tintcoat, with all the requisite graphics and safety lights. Mechanically, it won’t differ from the production model, which is scheduled to arrive in showrooms this fall. The 6.2-liter, 450-hp LT1 V8 should have no trouble staying ahead of the field.

About a year ago, I had the chance to test out an early Malibu Eco, and I thought it was a pretty good car. It looked pretty good. It ran pretty good. It handled pretty good. Everything was pretty good. I thought it would be an excellent alternative for someone looking to replace their aging Camry or Accord.

Me: Well, it’s art.
Dad: I mean, what is it?
Me: I think it used to be a Plymouth.
Dad: I’ll give ‘em one thing, they are creative.
Dad: I’d be scared to death to ride in the damn thing, though.

The Basehor Boys are doing their Ice-Breaker Car Show on Saturday, which is something they want to build up to be like Ol’ Marais someday. The Basehor City Park is a very nice venue, so you really should give it a shot. The Platte City Cruise is Saturday night, along with several others if you’re not in the Northland. And the ASRA is hosting a big street rod convention all weekend in Sugar Creek.
This is also a big weekend for racing. The NHRA Kansas Nationals is at Heartland Park Topeka all weekend, and if you’ve never experienced one of these events, it will blow you away. There are also several local circle tracks doing their thing all over the area.
The complete Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for May 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 is listed below.

I’m planning to be at the Nebraska Furniture Mart Friends and Family Car Show on Saturday, because hey, my old truck was somehow printed on the dash plaques and trophies. I can hardly miss out on an honor like that! The Basehor Cruise is always a nice place to go on a Friday night. There’s a AAA Insurance office up north that’s doing an all-domestic car show. And there are cruises all over the place. Also, if you’re a CARB member, you can get into Lakeside Speedway for free on Friday night.
The full schedule of Kansas City-area car shows, cruises, and races for May 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 is listed below.
